Diabetes insipidus, nephrogenic type 2

Diabetes insipidus, nephrogenic type 2: Introduction

Diabetes insipidus, nephrogenic type 2: A rare congenital condition where the kidney fails to respond to the antidiuretic hormone (arginine vasopressin), thus preventing reabsorption of water. This results in excessive urination and thirst. Type II is specifically caused by a defect in the AQP2 gene on chromosome 12q13. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Diabetes insipidus, nephrogenic type 2 is available below.
